Vanguard is a 2020 Chinese action adventure film written and directed by Stanley Tong, starring Jackie Chan, Yang Yang and Miya Muqi. It marks Chan’s seventh collaboration with Tong. The film was originally scheduled to be released on 25 January 2020 in China but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; it was released on 30 September 2020.
In “Vanguard,” Chan plays Huanting Tang, the boss of Vanguard, an international security firm whose problem-solving skills and ass-kicking abilities are repeatedly conflated with their moral authority.
Tang and his employees flex their righteous muscles and try to set a good example for (this past) Lunar New Year by protecting misguided accountant Guoli Qin (Jackson Lou) from the Brotherhood of Vengeance, a Middle Eastern terrorist group that Qin reluctantly helped to fund and therefore arm with weapons of mass destruction (“by selling oil and artifacts in Europe”).
Kindly watch and enjoy.
